Last week, Microsoft started a 'Find What's Next' scavenger hunt in its Edge browser, eventually unveiling a new logo for the browser over the weekend. While the company finally announced the general availability date for Edge Chromium today, the release candidate still doesn't have the new icon. As it turns out, it's coming tomorrow.
The new icon is a big departure from its previous browser icons. The original Edge logo was a blue 'e', and it was made that way because the Redmond firm didn't want it to be too much of a departure from Internet Explorer. The idea was that too many people access the internet by clicking on the blue 'e'.
The new logo is still an 'e', but it's a lot more subtle. It's not all blue anymore, as it resembles more of a wave, where you'll use it to surf the web. It's also more circular, like the Chromium logo.
The icon should show up in your browser tomorrow around 11am, and you shouldn't need to download a new build. The release candidate in the Beta channel is still the release candidate.
